GLEIF and LEI News
The Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) makes available comprehensive, regular and timely information on GLEIF activities and developments relevant to Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) rollout.
GLEIF Service Catalog:
GLEIF Service Catalog Published: Interactive Format Serves as a Pathfinder to Specific Information on Individual GLEIF ServicesIn March 2018, we published the GLEIF Service Catalog. It details the services we provide to both the public, e.g. LEI data users, and the partners GLEIF cooperates with such as the LEI issuing organizations. The service catalog is available as PDF for download and in an interactive format, which serves as a pathfinder to dedicated GLEIF website pages featuring detailed information on individual services.
Regulatory Use of LEI:
GLEIF Updates on Current and Proposed Regulatory Activities Including the Use of the LEIGLEIF closely monitors initiatives relevant to legal entity identification in regulatory reporting and supervision and makes related information available on its website. We last updated the overview of the current and proposed regulatory activities including the use of the LEI on 5 March 2018. The updates include: The Financial Markets Committee (FMC) and Bank Negara Malaysia (Central Bank of Malaysia) published a document “Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) LEGAL ENTITY IDENTIFIER (LEI)”. It discusses the usage of the LEI in Malaysia’s Real-time Electronic Transfer of Funds and Securities System (RENTAS).
GLEIF Data Quality Reports:
Latest LEI Data Quality Reports PublishedThe latest Global LEI Data Quality Report shows that the Total Data Quality Score remains stable above 99%. The findings also demonstrate that an increasing number of LEI issuing organizations meet distinct quality maturity levels (required, expected or excellent) based on stricter data quality rule settings implemented in November 2017. In addition, we published new monthly reports analyzing the level of data quality achieved by the individual LEI issuers.
Reminder: From 1 May 2018, GLEIF Will No Longer Publish the Level 1 LEI-CDF Version 1.0 Concatenated FileThe business card information available with the LEI reference data is referred to as ‘Level 1’ data. The reporting of Level 1 data is based on the LEI-Common Data File (CDF) format. Since 8 June 2015, GLEIF has published a daily Concatenated File containing Level 1 data based on the LEI-CDF format version 1.0. Since 8 May 2017, GLEIF has published an additional daily Concatenated File containing Level 1 data based on the updated LEI-CDF format version 2.1. GLEIF reminds LEI data users that the Level 1 LEI-CDF Version 1.0 Concatenated File will only be published during the remainder of the transitional period until 1 May 2018. From 1 May 2018, only the Level 1 LEI-CDF Version 2.1 Concatenated File will be provided. LEI data users are therefore strongly encouraged to adopt the LEI-CDF format version 2.1 as soon as possible.
GLEIF Invites Feedback from LEI Stakeholders on the Preview of its Golden Copy and Delta Files by 30 April 2018The GLEIF Golden Copy Files, in addition to the GLEIF Concatenated Files, offer a distinct means to access, and explore the information included within, the LEI data pool. GLEIF issues three sets of Golden Copy Files daily. With each updated version of the Golden Copy Files, GLEIF also makes available four delta files. The delta files identify only newly issued LEIs and / or revisions to an LEI’s reference data historically reported in a Golden Copy File published either: eight hours earlier, 24 hours earlier, seven days earlier or one month (31 days) earlier. The first monthly delta file will be available on March 11th, 2018. GLEIF invites LEI data users to provide feedback on the Golden Copy Files by 30 April 2018. The files will evolve to ensure alignment with user requirements.
